Company Valuation and Value Creation

This course aims to prepare students to use modern finance theory to understand better how companies are valued and to make capital allocation decisions that lead to long-run value maximization for the corporation. This course emphasizes applications and financial model building, and a portion of the course deals with company valuation and value-based management (i.e., merging financial, corporate, and business strategies to measure and manage the value of a corporation). Students develop knowledge about spreadsheet models and how to use Monte Carlo simulation as a risk and investment analysis tool.
